Jumbo Paper Clip Bookmarks

These jumbo paper clip bookmarks would be a nice teacher appreciation gift, or attach to mom's favorite book for Mother's Day.

I purchased the paper clips at a local home office store, and embellished them with a variety of punches, cardstock and designer series paper.  To keep the design on the paper clip, I punched two of each of the larger designs and adhered them using sticky strip.  I then embellished the front.

These would be a fun project for your local library, scout troop, or after school program too!

To make the bookmarks I used the following:
Cardstock:  Real Red #102482, Pacific Point #111350, Bashful Blue #105120, Pear Pizzazz #119795, Early Espresso #119686, Crumb Cake #120953
Designer Series Paper:  Greenhouse Gala #117167, Brights Paper Stack #117155, Love Letter #117162
Punches:  2 3/8" Scallop Circle #118874, Build a Cupcake #121807, Fancy Flower #118073, Two Step Owl #118074
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Flower Daisies #2 Bigz die #114520, Sticky Strip #104294
Embellishments:  Neutral Designer Buttons #119743
